Well, I think I'll upgrade my PC soon. Here's the spec I'm eying:

Core i7 920 (will overclock, dunno how much yet)
Asus P6T
6GB OCZ Gold DDR3 1600MHZ 8-8-8-24
Overclocked GTX 275
650W Be quiet! PSU

Any idea how well the game will run with this rig? icon14.gif

SLI mirrors VRAM. It doesn't double it.

im thinking of getting a new cpu for my pc and would like to know how much of an effect it will have on my fps

im currently running the game quite well but would like to improve the performance lowest it drops to is 25 but mainly 30ish and rises too 60+ in deserted areas

my spec ,,,Phenom 9150e quad 1800mhz @2330mhz
,,,Ati Powercolour 5770
,,,6 gbs DDR2 800mhz corsair ram


if i bought the new phenom 2 965 125 watt version @3400mhz and overclock
would i see a huge performance increase fps wise

I got a Dell XPS 8000, i5 750, 8 GB Ram, with windows 7.. Power supply 350 Watt with Geforce GT 220... my main question basically is will GTA 4 run smooth using medium graphics?

And besides from my first question what affordable Nvidia product should i get, given the pc description.. ?

Thanks

I don't have any personal experience with that card, but I have a GTX280. Personally I would have gone with a slightly better GPU, as looking at your specs it seems to be the weak point. That said, if it doesn't run smoothly on medium you could always try the "-availablevidmem" commandline. Your other topic said your RAM was DDR3, and since IV's exe is 32 bit, most of that RAM would be sitting there idle anyway.

Your PSU may not be enough to power a better gfx card.

Maybe nobody else wanted to state the obvious. It should run great. Or maybe they thought you were just bragging. If you're gonna OC just for GTAIV, I don't know how much performance you'd gain. That's already 1 monster of a CPU. I suppose if you're an FPS junkie, it might be worth it.

I did a lot of research, however I'm pretty much not a puter expert. So here are the components I have on order. If anyone has any suggestions, tricks, feedback, etc etc, please let me know (otherwise I won't know!). I believe I've selected a processor that's good for overclocking, as I keep reading that GTA4 is super dependant on clock speed. Could anyone suggest a guide on overclocking, and given my processor, what specs I should overclock it to?

Obviously I can't run any benchmarks yet because it's all in pieces in cardboard boxes in a plane somewhere. I'm just wondering, in general, what I might expect, and if there are things I might not know that I should.

There really was no need for that page stretcher truehighroller, I edited the tags out. If you want to repost the pic then fair enough but do it at a reasonable res so it doesn't stretch the page.

The only thing I would suggest is that you take another look at the graphics card. There is nothing wrong with it as such but it is a Dx10 only card and it seems a shame to limit yourself with a card that is going to exclude you from Dx11 for a few years till you upgrade. If you are not in a hurry to build your PC then you could wait and see what Nvidia has instore GPU wise for Dx11 or alternatively if you can't wait have a look at the ATI 5800 series of cards.

Thanks for the response Charlie (and sorry about the thread you locked, didn't know it belonged here).

Most of my components are right up to the point where if you want better, the prices seriously start ramping up. A DX11 card is way more expensive (at least GeForce), 4 gig sticks instead of 2 gig sticks, etc. I can certainly get a better card when the DX11 compatibles come down, but as stated, I really just want to get into current games that are perfect for the hardware mentioned above, namely GTA4, Borderlands, Fallout 3, and Left 4 Dead 2.

I'm still wondering about overclocking though. I've never done it. I've seen a lot of talk here about how GTA4 does much better with every bit of clock speed you can muster, then others saying that current high-end CPU's are just fine as they are, which makes me wonder which camp my CPU would fall under.

Anyways, I bought GTA4 the day it came out, and it's barely playable but not enjoyable on my previous PC, and I can't wait to see what one of my favorite franchises has to offer me.

I was as disappointed if not more so than everyone at release, and while there have been a number of updates, it really seems like the best thing is to get the best hardware you can.

If money is a concern then I would have a look at the ATI 5850 from what I have seen it is just $50 more than the GTX275. There is an excellent review of it here :-

http://www.anandtech...aspx?i=3650&p=1

As you can see from the benchmarks it is significantly faster than the GTX275 and it will allow you to access Dx11 features. Now I will confess I am a bit of an Nvidia fanboy myself and I would prefer to buy Nvidia hardware. However it is difficult to ignore what ATI are offering, if I was to buy a graphics card that will last me the next 3 - 4 years I would want it to be Dx11. After all you never know the next GTA might be a Dx11 game ................... yeah well we can dream can't we tounge.gif

I wouldn't worry about overclocking your cpu I have seen people with i7's (your i5 is similar to that) saying they are easily getting 60fps on decent settings. I personally find anything over 30fps more than enough (I get that with my 2 year old Quad Q6600).

Oh and don't worry about the locked thread, I was more annoyed at the guys that did the "in before the lock rubbish".

You should try out a ATI card. They're quite good, have nice OC capability. The only thing that sucks with ATI is their limited anti-aliasing options. The limited profile options in control panel (nVidia has configurable things per game, it's easy to get AA in Vice City, with ATI I just let it be, configuring sucks.

But ATi has the thing in Dx11 that makes low-poly things into very-high poly things using textures (it's possible already with some ati demo's) Tesselation it's called. Dunno if it's possible with nVidia. Oh, and ATi doesn't support PhysX, that also sucks.

It should be good enough for GTA IV but since it's a budget card, don't expect it to be as good as the 58xx series. The 5770 is slightly better in performance than the 5750. What are your other specifications?

A i5 750 8gddr3

with the 5770 they say:

Power Supply Requirements PCI Express based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard 450 Watt or greater power supply with two 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connectors recommended (600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX technology

Does this mean I need a power supply of 450 watts or do I need more

450W is the minimum power requirement. I suggest you get either a 500W or a 550W PSU. For Crossfire, the minimum requirement is 600W.
